Clean and decent place. Staff and security (not sure why) were all polite and professional. Meals are ok, it still amazes me that people go to cuba to complain on the food. it is basic and wholesome, not the Keg etc. Excursions - catamaran and fishing was great. stay away from the 2 colonial cities tour unless you want total of 7 hours on a bus, and a few hours in sourvenirs (all same). Not recommended. Beach is amazing and so is water and sun. Go with the expectations that you will eat better than cuban nationals but less variety than Canada/USA and you will be fine. Forget internet being consistent, leave phone at home. Gave loonies as tips and exchanged them for bills with the staff when we left. they were happy with that arrangement. Night shows were actually very good. Enjoy this place we will be back!
